RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
When Rosario signed with the Padres for $1.85 million on July 2, he was thought to be behind the developmental curve relative to his contemporaries. However, reports from instructs suggest he is much more advanced than we were led to believe. While he was originally thought to be destined for a corner spot, it now sounds like he could stick in center field, where his "hit over power" profile will play much better. That label is more of a testament to his potentially plus hit tool than a slight on his power projection, as he has the raw physical tools to hit 20 homers. How his body matures in the coming years will dictate what kind of offensive player he becomes. If he remains somewhat lean and sticks in center, he could be a 20-homer, 20-steal threat. If he outgrows the position and moves to a corner, then he will also likely overshoot that 20-homer projection while being less of a threat on the bases. The hit tool makes either package awfully appealing. Just remember he is roughly five years away from the majors.
